We are actively involved in our community and love to have groups come and visit our centre to share with the children the goings on in their wider community. Theorist and research Bronfenbrenner says, "humans don't develop in isolation, but in relation to their family and home, school, community and society. Each of these ever-changing and multilevel environments, as well as interactions among these environments, are key to development".

Here are just some of the groups we are involved with and many more.
